Finding Lyrical Beauty in Bikes…


TracyRiding a motorcycle is freedom on wheels! I love the sense of freedom, in life, in love and in speech. I strive to find lyrical beauty in my everyday life, this weekend I did just that! I attended the Motorcycle Show and found more than one bike I would love to straddle, twist the throttle and take for a spin! I went with Triumph on the top of my list, a Thruxton to be more specific and came home with 4 others that I had never even thought of before. (I’m not counting Triumph out but there wasn’t a black one on site…I like black bikes) Life is like that sometimes. We have an idea of what we want and where we are going and in a single moment without notice, everything changes, just like that. The trick is to keep your mind and heart open to the possibilities that await.

If money were no object I would have a much larger list of cycles including the one in the picture above 😉 It makes me gooey inside. Soooo, here is my top picks in no specific order ~ (not including an old Norton or Knucklehead or dirt bike)

Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE

04 griso_lateraledx

Moto Guzzi V7 Racer

03 V7 Racer (1)

 BMW K1300S


Ariel 1938 Square Four


Triumph Thruxton


…and a ______, and a ______ and a _____. The list just keeps growing 😉 Happy trails everyone!

    Hey Tracy,

    As I was searching the internet for more recent videos, reviews and feedback from other Griso owners, Google brought up the link to your site. It seems you are a fan of some of the MG models. Should you be interested in getting a closer look and some personal feedback about the 8V SE. You might consider taking a ride on that classy Thruxton of yours to S. Delta in the spring for the Tsawwassen Classic and Vintage Show-n-Shine. Perhaps you have already been to one of the previous ride-ins down here. There are a number of us in the area who own them. I am not sure at this point if the two other gents will be there this year but I would imagine they may. I am hoping to be there with my mine if you have any questions or would just like to take another look at one. There are not too many on th road so I thought I would let you know about the opportunity. There will more than likely be a few V7s there as well along with many more nice bikes.

    Anyhow, I enjoyed navigating your site and reading some of your posts. Have a great 2014.

    All the best,
